Example text

If consent is to be valid, it must meet the following criteria: • Voluntary: In other words, the decision must be made by the patient alone and not in response to undue pressure from health-care professionals, friends, or family. • Informed: The individual must have received sufficient information to fully understand the implications of the investigation or treatment, in particular its benefits and risks. Equally, information about the consequences of not having the investigation or procedure performed should have been provided and alternative options discussed.

In order to be able to do this, the health-care professional must: • Have the ability to recognise whether the patient has the mental capacity to make the decision about the treatment or procedure. • Be able to provide the patient with enough information to provide informed consent, particularly in relation to the risks and benefits of the treatment/ procedure. • Recognise the importance of the voluntary nature of consent. • Know about the particular issues relating to obtaining consent from children and young adults and the issue of parental responsibility where appropriate.

Capacity: The person should have the mental capacity to understand the full range of information provided and to be able to make an informed decision based on that information. Informed consent The first section of this chapter discusses obtaining informed consent, which is an essential part of the interaction between clinician and patient before a procedure is performed. The second section describes the need to keep good records of any procedure, to ensure optimal patient care, and to enable clinical practice to be audited and constantly reviewed against national and local guidance.
